An open ended scheme investing in arbitrage opportunities

HybridInception Date:21/12/2006Ask an Advisor

Buying in one market and selling in another simultaneously to take advantage of a temporary price differential is called arbitrage.

For instance, if you could buy A in Gujarat at `100 and sell it in Mumbai simultaneously at `101, you could make `1 profit at very low risk. This opportunity arises out of market inefficiency and is the basis of every arbitrage trade.
